Sun Screen For a Burnt Nose
So, my poor man came in from the pasture yesterday with some pretty nasty sunburn and blisters on his nose. It hadn't been a problem until know because it's been so hot that the horses were spending the daylight hours under their run-in, but now that it has cooled down they've been grazing out in the sun. I have a fly mask with a nose on him now, but it's pretty much impossible to keep one on him. So my question is, what's the best sun screen to use on a horse's nose? What lasts the longest and is the most effective. Also, what's the best way to help heal his burn and alleviate some of the pain? I cleaned it off yesterday and rubbed some Skin-So-Soft on it, but I'm wondering if there is anything that works better and will help heal it faster. Thanks!
